Distributed Temperature Sensing: Review of Technology and Applications

  title={Distributed Temperature Sensing: Review of Technology and Applications},
  author={Abhisek Ukil and Hubert Br{\"a}ndle and P. Krippner},
  journal={IEEE Sensors Journal},
Distributed temperature sensors (DTS) measure temperatures by means of optical fibers. Those optoelectronic devices provide a continuous profile of the temperature distribution along the cable. Initiated in the 1980s, DTS systems have undergone significant improvements in the technology and the application scenario over the last decades. The main measuring principles are based on detecting the back-scattering of light, e.g., detecting via Rayleigh, Raman, and Brillouin principles. The… CONTINUE READING
